Reid Supporters Threw Eggs at Tea Party Bus. Left-wing violence?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's hometown of Searchlight, Nev., served as kickoff site Saturday for the latest Tea Party Express tour -- and apparently Reid's supporters weren't too happy about it.

The conservative Tea Party activists were there to protest the policies of Reid and other Democratic leaders, and Reid supporters staged their own protest, with some throwing eggs at a Tea Party Express bus.

  • Nahhhhh, it couldn't be violence. I am sure they were just giving the TEA party participants Easter eggs, you know that's this weekend, right? It will be spun into something made of magic and fairy tales.

  • All fringe should be disassociated from the majority. I don't know why we have to keep having this conversation. 


    And since this question is about the egg incident, anon, why don't you start your own question about the "Christians" you are talking about?  Nothing like deflecting from the original topic.

  • You guys are trying to compare apples to oranges and trying to justify right wing behavior.

  • It goes both ways, anytime someone brings up the right wing violence its like little children"but but they do it too"..or " they did it first"

  • How so, anon? This question is about the egg throwing. I won't advocate on the behalf of any fringe group that is intent on violence. Why can't people just answer the question instead of answering with another question that has nothing to do with the original question? It's not a hard concept.

  • Spitting in the general direction of someone was considered assault just a few days ago.   But eggs, no way! LOL


    The people who brought eggs to the protest did so with intent.  It would be assault if they hit someone, and shows both sides have wackos.

  • Quinn, its called deflecion. I am proud to say that the teapartiers did not react to the childish egg throwers. They are generally above that type of behavior.
